Abstract

One of the challenges faced by the healthcare industry is the growing number of patients, which has caused an increase in wait time and staff utilization. These effects greatly influence patient flow, resulting in unnecessary costs. For this project, we used discrete event simulation to study and improve processes within the Emergency Department at HealthAlliance Hospital in Leominster, Massachusetts.
